Bandera house description

La Buena Vista Guest House is a relaxing escape from the every day hustle and bustle. Enjoy the incredible views of the Texas Hill Country, wildlife viewing, birding, spectacular sunsets and stargazing! Experience the relaxing pleasure of Bandera’s Cowboy living.

La Buena Vista Guest House is a traditional Hill Country limestone house situated on eleven acres. Enjoy the peace and tranquility sitting on the patio watching the hummingbirds or taking in the beauty of a sunset.

The guesthouse is a private and relaxing retreat. Included is a fully equipped kitchen. Complimentary beverage and fresh baked cookies are provided upon arrival. The house is loft-style and features a queen-size bed, full bath with tub/shower, the living area has a full size futon sofa and a dining area with table and chairs.

Horseback riding, hiking and bicycling are popular at the Hill Country State Natural Area, the largest in the state, or at other locations such as Lost Maples, Enchanted Rock or Garner State Park. Tubing and kayaking on the Medina River are favorite summer activities. Summer also brings the fun and excitement of rodeos to Bandera, so bring your favorite cowboy/cowgirl attire!

Bandera is well known for its great music and dance halls. Grab your partners and kick up your heels for a little two-stepping.

Special events throughout the year include Riverfest, The Medina Apple Festival, Lakehills Cajun Festival, Hunter’s BBQ and Celebrate Bandera to name a few.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2000

                      About the owner: Bob & Jan Grimes

                      Why the Owner Chose Bandera:
                      We purchased our 11 acres in 2000, and completed the Guesthouse in 2002. We used the Guesthouse as a 'get-a-way' for the next seven years. During that time, extensive clearing was done on the property. Our long term intent had always been to use the Guesthouse as a vacation rental after we retired, and moved permanently to Bandera. We completed construction of our main house, and made the permanent move from Dallas, in August 2009. Since that time, we have greatly enjoyed sharing our Guesthouse, and the Bandera area with our guests. Bandera is a unique community, adhering to its cowboy culture and history of good country music. Come on down!
